Question about Kyocera Finecam M410R Digital Camera

1 Answer

Streaks of red and green flashing across screen when turned on.

My camera was purchased 30/12/2007. It has been a good camera until yesterday when it developed this problem described. Below is a similar problems descibed. I used it as I had no idea what to ask of you. My kyocera now takes photos that are streaked purple and orange and the pre photo screen shows a negative purple image. Is this an inevitable fault that digital cameras develop and is it worth repairing. I ask because these cameras are not manufactured anymore and I have found this model to be one of the best 'shoot and point' cameras I have used even though it is quite old now.

Well I guess you mean purchased December 2006 yes? In which case you could be in luck- return it to the seller as defective - which it is. If older- contact the maker website - this is a defective CCD There has been a recall on certain brands of camera that use the same CCD which is failing early.

Flash symbol & green circle next to it...

Hi groovychica.
I like that name.
Dropping the camera is the the number 1 reason for digital camera failure due to the delicate lens assembly's.
Unfortunately it will probably cost you more to fix, than replace.
You can check this site for a repair shop that will give you a repair quote, but you won't like it, sorry.

Do not buy a used camera on eBay as it may have been dropped also.( new is OK) It happened to me
Try Pricewatch or Amazon, I have purchased a few from both sites and found some very good deals for my friends. You can also check the Olympus online store, They often have some awsome prices on clearance models.

The good news is that the prices on the Olympus FE series
has dropped ( no pun intended ) considerably, especially last years models, like yours.
I wish I could have been more helpfull.
Best regards Paul

Green & Purple blurry images

In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
Here's a link to some information regarding these problems.
